To book your room right away, this is what you need to do:
1) Call the Miramar Inn at (858) 271-7111
2) Tell them that you are booking one of the reserved rooms under "Villanueva, Daniel" for the following dates: August 27, 28, 29 & 30, 2015
3) Again, the LAST NAME for the reserved rooms is under "Villanueva", first name "Daniel". They will need that name to book your room, a Credit Card, your Rank (give them your last rank), and your Unit (HMH-465) to reserve your room.
4) Once you have booked your room, be sure to let me know ASAP. I need to keep a count.

In the words of my favorite CO, "Giddy-up!"
Ooorah! Semper Fi!
Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 465 (HMH-465), the "Warhorse", was established on 1 December 1981 as the first West Coast squadron to fly the CH-53E Super Stallion. It became the Marine Corps' second and Marine Aircraft Group 16's first CH-53E Squadron. Based at MCAS (H) Tustin, CA
During the last thirty-three years the squadron has accrued a wide assortment of experience and accomplishments. All the capabilities of the CH-53E have been put to the test in both peace-time and during combat operations. The men and women of the squadron have performed gallantly throughout.
The "Warhorses" flew in combat for the first time during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. On 15 September, 1990 the squadron arrived in Saudi Arabia in support of all joint forces in theater. The Warhorses have been supporting a multitude of missions since.
